We at Notiboy has a vision to make web3 communication more efficient. That means the algorand addresses should be able to communicate with each other by maintaining their privacy. So we are developing a chat application which will help the addresses to chat between each other in an anonymous way. There will also be a facility for group chat which will help formation and development of web3 communites. The users will also be able to send/transfer assets between addresses during their chat.
AP - CEO. I have 7 years of experience in sales and marketing of mobile handsets for multiple MNCs in India. I have been an active member in the Algorand community since August 2021 and is involved with the Angry Penguins NFT project.
Deepak -CTO. Deepak has a Masters in computer science and has worked in product design & development for leading payment companies in the world. He is well versed in the Algorand smart contracts and SDKs and has been leading the design and development of Notiboy project.
We have been building the Notiboy project and won 2nd prize during the 1st Green House Hackathon. We are one of the 6 teams that graduated from 1st cohort of the Algorand APAC accelerator.
In present proposal we would like to implement group chat which will allow projects to create communities without the complxities of discord. Smaller projects can create a group by just connecting their wallet. Community members can join the group by just connecting their wallet and need not share any other information. This will help them to maintain privacy.
We will implement end to end encryptionwhich will make sure that the communication is secure and cannot be leaked by malicious entities.
NFDomains will be integrated for better user experience while chatting. The address and profile picture will be replaced by NFD (if there is one) which can also be considered as a digital idenity usecase for domain name service.
Our group chat application will be mobile first with implementation on iOS and Android. This is inline with the analysis that mobile phones are primarly used for chat applications when compared to web.
